for video

duration: 12 minutes

Sarah Goldfarb is a Belgian choreographer/composer who has been working in England since 1990. Her approach to choreography is directly informed by her intimate connection to music. She has developed an expressive dance-theatre language that integrates the physical and the sonorous and defines herself as a choreographer/composer working with the vocal, the physical and the object.
Sarah has toured both nationally and internationally with music-theatre groups Swoop, Zig-a-tag, Babel and with her own music and dance productions. She has composed scores for Shobana Jeyasing Education, Angela Woodhouse, Little Angel Theatre and the Belgrade Theatre and was invited by the Gothenburg Opera House to co-direct a large-scale opera with sixty young people and ten professional musicians and dancers (1995).

In 1996, she co-founded the music-and-dance company ChiaraScura with Kathy Crick in the vision to integrate music and dance into a single art-form. Within a year of existence, the company received a Bonnie Bird Award, a London Arts Board New Choreographer's Award and a Commission from The Place Theatre.

Sarah was an Associate Artist at The Place Theatre and was short-listed for The Jerwood Award for Choreographers in April 98. She was invited to the Third Conference for Music and Dance in Stockholm (1998) to present her work and to lead workshops on the integration of Music and Dance.

Back to shortlist.
